I moved my hdd to a new pc. The hardware is different from the old pc. I was able to get online yesterday, however not anymore today. I can see when I run
ifconfig -a that it is telling me that I have eth0 and eth1. The old pc has 2 network cards, the new one only has one.
I am assuming that the issue is that it is looking for the mac of the old network cards and not the new one. I deleted the entries in 70-persistant-net.rules and it reprinted the same eth0 and eth1 on reboot.
The version is Ubuntu 11.04. I do want to upgarde to 12.04 however I dont have a cd rom and the new box isnt booting from a flash drive.
I tried running dhclient on both eth0 and eth1 and in both cases the waits for about 60 to 90 seconds and then just gives me the command line again without printing any information. I then go back to ifconfig -a and I now ever a new entry
ethx:avahi link encap:Ethernet and then eventually I see an inet address of 169.xxx.x.xxx which is an error address
Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue? Maybe it is a driver issue since I moved to the new box? It just doesnt make sense that I had internet yesterday and today I do not.
